EH Film "Best Free Film Series!"

Our grassroots film forum was just recognized as "the best free film series" (see below for the story) by Indianapolis Monthly. Our screenings have become one of the most exciting events in the city.

Free and open to everyone, we have brought cutting-edge filmmakers to town and screened the most important films on our most pressing social issues. Our biggest events have become full blown festivals and a great community of activists, concerned neighbors, artists, church folk, college students, and everyday people have become connected.

In 2009, we plan to take the film series to a whole other level and would love your help and involvement ...

Help Build Earth House Films

The Earth House Film series is on the verge of becoming something special.

Each week (primarily Thursday nights at 7:30 PM), we will be screening documentaries and other important films that explore the most pressing social issues of our time. We also hope to show films from local and mid west filmmakers, great movies from the past, and bring filmmakers to town.

The film forum is entirely community supported.

If you have enjoyed this film series and want it to grow and succeed, please become or have your business or nonprofit become a monthly sponsor of Earth House Films. By financially supporting the film series, your organization will get advertising and mentioned at the screenings, links on our website, emails, and blogs, and get reserved seating for your group on our biggest nights.

From Indianapolis Monthly, December 2008:

Best Free Film Series: Since 2006, the left-leaning congregation at Lockerbie Central United Methodist Church has screened monthly documentaries inside the 125-year-old church. The cost is free, but donations are welcome to see thought-provoking films that have touched on subjects like U.S. agricultural policy and the war in Iraq. In April, it even hosted the two-night Rural Route Film Festival. 237 N. East St., 637-2716,
